I bought a RF900R and someone had installed GSXR cams in it. I've heard a few talks about this seaming to be a pretty popular thing to do. From what I have found out I guess the GSXR cams had to be shortened to fit. Except I can't find anyone to tell me what advantage of doing this did for the bike. Is it suppose to be better for mid range or top end or what. Or if it was even worth it to do this. Like to know if I would be better off with the stockers.
Thanks

More aggresive cam lobe angle, quicker opening valves, takes some horsepower from thwe lower end and puts it above 9 grand. I for one like the low to mid range punch, it still has enough getup up tops as well.

Thanks, I too would rather have it down low. Now I just need to go locate some.

It is a not so easy procedure to remove the cams, so be sure you know what your doing, and you have the manual when doing the jobs, because you can mess up the cam timing...
